# 18 Places 2+2=4 and One Place It Doesn’t

12 Mar

What? 2+2 sometimes doesn’t equal 4? I thought you said it always does.

It does.

2+2 = 4 everywhere on earth.
2+2 = 4 in Asia.
2+2 = 4 in Istanbul

2+2 = 4 in Australia. 2+2 = 4 in Angola. 2+2 = 4 in Saudi Arabia. 2+2 = 4 in Paris. 2+2 = 4 in London. 2+2 = 4 in North America. 2+2 = 4 in South America. 2+2 = 4 in Antarctica.

It is not culturally, temporally or locality dependent.

2+2 = 4 on the Moon.
2+2 = 4 on Mars.
2+2 = 4 on Jupiter.
2+2 = 4 in the middle of the Sun.

It is not limited to this solar system. It doesn’t matter if there is life or not.

2+2 = 4 in Alpha Centauri.
2+2 = 4 in the Horse Head Nebula.
2+2 = 4 in the Andromeda Galaxy.

That’s 18. I promised you one place where 2 + 2 <> 4. Can you guess?

The only place where 2 + 2 cannot equal 4 is where 2 does not exist.

Nonetheless, if you add 2 gravitational singularities with 2 gravitational singularities, you still get 4 …until they merge and become 1 but then you probably get a Big Bang.
